Michael D. Hayre Fellowship

Scholarship Description

Description:The Americans for Medical Progress/Michael D. Hayre Fellowship in Public Outreach, established in 2008, promotes peer education about animal research among students and young adults aged 18-30. Named in memory of Michael D. Hayre, DVM, ACLAM, the Fellowship provides support for peer outreach and education projects in the United States. The AMP/Hayre Fellowship program seeks to find and support college students and young adults here in the United States who are just as frustrated by the domination of animal rights rhetoric against biomedical research and who are committed to making a case for the necessary and humane use of laboratory animals in the pursuit of treatments and cures. As an AMP Hayre Fellow, by developing innovative outreach programs for your peers to lead them in making an informed decision about this issue, you will be helping to secure the future of medicine. Americans for Medical Progress is currently accepting applications for the next class of AMP/Hayre Fellows. Fellows receive a $5,000 stipend and support for peer education projects. The deadline for applications is April 30. Eligibility:Fellowships are open to college students aged 18 or older, or to any young adult aged 18-30 who supports the humane use of animals in biomedical research and education and who offers an innovative proposal for peer education on research issues. Fellows must be legal residents of the US. Visit the website for more information.
